Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • Sharp pains under rt armpit comes and goes. Breast tenderness in both breasts.


  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • The adverse effect is lasting two weeks. Is it normal? How long I have to wait?


  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • The Mirena caused the tumors I now have in both breasts. The type is diffuse pseudoangiomatous stromal hyperplasia. Even after removing the Mirena, the condition has worsened and spread. I would like to have a bilateral mastectomy, as the pain is noncyclical, and this whole condition has been negatively effecting my life for 7 months. I am 21 years old. THE END.
